Watercolour pine bough

Watercolour pine bough Heather Telford

I have another watercolour card today created using a similar technique to this card. I had a piece of  watercolour paper was already covered with little flecks of masking fluid so I wet the panel, inked the pine bough stamp with Memento markers and stamped it onto the wet paper. It bled quite a bit so I let it dry a little then re-inked and stamped again to give definition to the pine cones and needles. I painted the background with diluted distress stain which blended in some places with the stamping. Because I chose to mat my picture panel I did not want another border around the sentiment so I stamped the sentiment on a post-it note and cut out the centre  text creating a window mask to stamp through.

My daughter made some cute cookies this week.

Stamps: Needles and cones, Glad Tiding (PB)
Inks: Memento Cottage Ivy, EspressoTruffle & Distress Stain Broken China  (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Fabriano 25% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper
Also: Winsor & Newton Masking Fluid

    Now I really really have to try this watercolour stamping technique. This is beautiful. Choosing brown ink for the sentiment was wise, too, works perfectly.
